Two days after postponing its show in Scranton, Pennsylvania because a person “within the KORN camp” tested positive for COVID-19,” the band has now rescheduled an additional five dates on its current U.S. tour due to the fact that singer Jonathan Davis contracted the disease caused by the novel coronavirus.
KORN shared the news of the postponement in a statement posted on social media. The band wrote: “We really appreciate your patience as we work out the next steps for our tour.
“On Saturday, we received the unfortunate news that Jonathan tested positive for Covid, and needless to say, we had to postpone the show last minute. As a result of his positive test, we also need to reschedule the next handful of shows.
“As always, our primary goal is to ensure the safety of everyone involved, so this is something that has to be done. Jonathan’s spirits are high, and he’s resting and recovering now.
“We’re as disappointed as you are about the circumstances, but we’ll get through it though, and we can’t wait to see you once we’re back, firing on all cylinders once again.
“We thank you all for your love and support!”
